Pleasure is our Motivation

Krishna being the cause of all causes, He must produce our fall, the ‘bad’ also.

At the same time it is propagated not to sin.

How are these two things to be reconceliated?

The little-known secret to Advancement in Krishna Consciousness

Hare Krishna Madhudvisa Dasa,

If the Lord – Cause of causes – is the root-cause of all that be, ain’t that same Vishnu the cause of even Kali Yuga with profusion of non-religion? How then with bad persons: not-withstanding the fact that the Lord provided us – as part and parcel – with free will, ain’t His Sustainance even behind our bad actions? Can be said that even those actions are Krishna’s play?
May your lucid reply not only relieve my puzzling, but serve other seekers too!

Hare Krishna !! Madhudvisa dasa,
Your words are uncompromising yet must be true, by evidence and authority of scripture.
Being entrapped ‘hand and foot’ in material engagements I nevertheless try to please Krishna by offering Him the fruits of my work. Yet I must admit that my surrender is far from 100%…
Living, at age of 71, with my espouse for more than 40 years now, it seems a drastic step – for me as well as for her – to leave (for Amsterdam?)
But for the words ‘Do not fear’ from Krishna Himself this all worries me and I humbly pray for your advice.

Reading Srila Prabhupada’s Books

Dear Madhudvasa dasa.

Hare Krishna!
Several times I have read devotees been advised to chant at least 16 rounds a day.
I have no idea what exactly is meant with the word ’round’.
Will you kindly explain – for my better understanding?
Your Gratefull

Hare Krishna!
Our dear cat left her body just two days ago. Sixteen was her age.
What – according to vaishnavic filosofy – is the place/role of animals in general?
I assume the Supreme Person of Godhead gave them an identity too? Do they – being also spirit soul then – sink and rise as human identities do after reincarnating? Can they attain a human body? Have all humans ever in their evolutional unfolding been animals once?

Thanking you beforehand for your kind and clearing reply,

    Hare krishna Prabhuji.,Dandvat Pranaam
    May i know about the author of the book”Srila Prabhupada Lilamrita As It Is” named mukund das prabhu.Had he any personal association with Srila Prabhupada.

    • This book is a compilation of direct quotes from Srila Prabhupada speaking about his own life. The author is Srila Prabhuapda, all Mukunda did was compile the quotes and he did a good job of it. He wrote a bit of rubbish on the last 2 pages but apart from that he did not write a single word in the book. It is a collection of Prabhupada quotes and the author of this book is Srila Prabhuapda.

    Prabhu Madhudvisa Dasa.Is Jagannath Krishna himself or is just an expansion of Krishna like Vishnu,Rama etc.In Iskcon lectures I heard that Jagannath is Krishna himself,they have proved this by saying a story from Skanda purana.Is this true or Iskcon lectures are just bogus?I found no video Prabhupad talking aboyt Lord Jagannath.Oh Prabhu kindly answer my doubts.Hare Krishna

    • Yes. Lord Jagannatah is Krishna Himself. It is Jagannatha [Krishna] Balarama and Krishna’s sister Subhadra.

      So Jagannatha is deity form of Krishna. He is representation of Krishna with His brother Balarama and sister Subhadra,

      It is deity manifestation of Krishna, Balarama and Lady Subhadra,

    Jai Govind

    I request you clear my doubts.I understand the complexities of life processes,cellular mechanisms and other natural phenomenon cannot be explained solely by reasoning and scientific theories as somewhere or other our knowledge is limited.I am a science student nd nature lover.After reading the article posted by you regarding the concept of the origin of life,a question arisen in my mind that krishna is all powerful,then, why he designed this universe in this complicated way?,why life originated? why he made all that dna etc matter space?what is his true nature? why are we given these bodies these reasoning abilities?why krishna waited for billions of years and made us take birth here?why prakrati and purush got seperated? who were those dinosaurs etc for souls are eternal were those dinosaurs primitive and other organisms we only? are there any planet lest earth having life?why will happen atlast for we are ultimately destined to reach our eternal govind? why doesn’t he appears now and clear all these doubts for one thing is sure that if even he messages in some ways we will submit to him?why krishna is so naughty why has he made everything complicated?I know these are childlish questions but still worthy to be answered…..

    I am a krishana devotee.I feel as if there is pure love for him deep in my heart.But at the same time I do believe in science.Sometimes i find myself stuck in between science emotions belief and devotion.I want to understand my Govind,I want to understand myself.

    I request my friends to please give answer to these questions.I hope i will get atleast answers of a few questions as i found this site quite appealing.

    Radhe krishna

    • Hare Krishna Jai Govind

      To clear your doubts you have to become Krishna conscious. Because unless you become Krishna conscious you will not be able to understand what Krishna consciousness is and you will remain continually bewildered.

      All these questions are irrelevant. You seem to accept that Govinda exists, that He is the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Now you have to just surrender to the idea that you are His servant. And then you need to find out practically how you can engage in the service of Krishna. And to find out how to do this you need to read Srila Prabhupada’s books. And in the process of becoming Krishna conscious all your other questions will automatically be answered.

      The scientists can not understand anything. They only have very fragmental information about everything they study. The information we can gather through our material senses is very limited. There are so many things we can not perceive through our material senses. So they can not understand what they can not perceive.

      So instead of just speculating all these questions and being bewildered like this it is better to just admit that in our conditioned state with our very limited mind and our material senses we can not hope to understand Krishna or even this material world which is created ultimately by Krishna.

      The way to understand these things is to become Krishna conscious. We can not understand without becoming Krishna conscious.

      So you have to learn how to become Krishna conscious… That is the answer to all your questions. And Krishna consciousness is a science and that science is very elaborately presented in the books of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.

      Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

      Madhudvisa dasa
